Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

I bought Steins Gate 0 and Root Letter in the PSN sale for £19.99 and £14.99 respectively, then saw them both in Game in Northampton for £20 each - special editions with art booklets too! D'oh! Even so, I'm looking forward to playing them. I've really enjoyed the visual novel genre over the past few...

Re: Best Online Retro Service

Based on the systems I own and the services I have access to, it has to be PSN. I have around 30 or so PSOne Classics that I've paid for once, but have been able to use across my PSP, PS3 and Vita. I do own two Virtual Console games on the 3DS, but my understanding is that these are tied to the cons...

Re: Have Achievements & Trophies run their course?

I've never bothered with trophies on PS3, but I've been going for them on a lot of Vita games and managed to 100% a few in the process. It's interesting how you can see the percentage of players who have a particular trophy too.

Thanks for that, just picked up Outrun and both SoR games. Haven't tried outrun yet but I'm very impressed with the 3d in SoR2.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

A black New 3DS with Ocarina of Time, Super Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil Mercenaries and a case. I also bought Link to the Past and Super Street Fighter Ii. First impressions of the system are good, very impressed with the 3D. The resolution takes some getting used to after so long with a Vita. ...

Re: Selling on ebay

Well after a couple of weeks now I've pretty much sold everything I listed, made just under £300 (which has paid for the new car seat for my little one) and received some good feedback. It's been quite fun packaging everything up and printing off the postage labels!

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Exactly why I've been enjoying the handheld Lego games, I also feel that some of the console games seem to drag on at times.

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

I did enjoy the New York hub on Lego Avengers. I felt a bit disappointed with the levels though, far too much content not included from the consoles, more so than usual it seemed. Also a little odd that we got the Agents of SHIELD dlc characters but nothing else.

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Lego Movie, Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Lego The Hobbit are the isometric ones.

The rest are based on the console versions. I would recommend Lego Batman 3 and Lego Force Awakens (the closest to the console experience in my opinion).

Re: Selling on ebay

Thank you for the feedback, very much appreciated :)

I'm doing these as a trial of sorts before I start Listing other things. Any money made is going straight into savings so fingers crossed :)

Re: Selling on ebay

Well it would seem I've made a huge mistake already! I've just been listing some more items using the app, when I noticed one of the items had a 30 day period rather than 7 days. As I was looking into what I had done wrong, I had a notification saying my item had been bought, then I received a messa...

Re: Selling on ebay

Thank you. I signed up for an eBay and PayPal account and just used the app to list my first item, a trial run of sorts. I've decided I may as well try and sell all my old games that although I would love to keep them, I know they wouldn't get used and I've got my little man (1 year old on 1st Septe...

Selling on ebay

I'm after a little bit of friendly advice - I have decided to part with my old video games (for Dreamcast, Saturn, Gamecube, N.Gage and GBA) and have just set myself up an ebay account. Having not used ebay for a good 10+ years, I have no idea how to go about the listings. If anyone with experience ...
